I don't think she was ever going to be involved with the creative side, beyond possibly having some input.

I'm not sure if the all-cap tweet indicates excitement or hints that Death will be involved.

So this is the Watch series that I asked about on the previous page? It's finally happening?

Yes, but it's all original writing with Pratchett's characters. It's described as a "punk rock thriller" so who knows.

And what about the Troll Bridge film, for which you posted a trailer earlier? It gave the impression of being near completion.

Last I heard, it was in post-production.

If you record books-on-tape, how do you deal with the following?

Pratchett, in Sourcery, wrote:
Rincewind blinked. There was a weird light. No, now he came to think about it, not weird but wyrd, which was much weirder.

I imagine something like "There was a weird light. No, now he came to think about it, not w-e-i-r-d but w-y-r-d, which was much weirder"

Doesn't work as well, but can't see any other way to impart it.

Yeah, or slightly shorter, "not weird but w-y-rd"
